WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 1, 2015) — Most Americans are highly connected to technology and believe the Digital Revolution has improved the quality of their interactions with their local communities, according to a new poll released today by The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) and National Journal.
The 24th quarterly Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll asked Americans across the country how technology is reshaping their lives. The poll explored how in many cases the Digital Revolution has made their lives easier, and how, in some areas, it has given Americans cause for concern.
“As we expected, our latest Heartland Poll found that consumers really love their technology, using it to shop, stay in contact with friends, fact-check and connect with other media,” said Bob Wasserman, Senior Vice President, Digital and Regional Marketing, Allstate. “That being said, we also discovered that technology doesn’t take the place of regular human-to-human interactions. It’s not digital instead of human connections, it’s digital in addition to those interactions.”
